A remarkable first line, leading the reader to look at something familiar in a slightly different light forever after.


"Christmas crept into Pine Cove like a creeping Christmas thing: dragging garland, ribbon, and sleigh bells, oozing eggnog, reeking of pine, and threatening festive doom like a cold sore under the mistletoe."

Christopher Moore, 'The Stupidest Angel'

hi julie - welcome to my blog. what do you write?

I write historical fiction and vampire stuff. Not published yet but closing in.
